I have recently presented a paper entitled “New Insights into Individual Activity Spaces using Crowd-Sourced Big Data” at the 2014 BigData conference – Stanford, CA, USA, 27-31 May. The paper is available here and slides (html) are here. UPDATE: papers from the conference are now available on the ase360 page.
I have recently presented some work at the GISRUK 2014 conference in Glasgow. The work is a collaboration with Martin Andresen (SFU, Canada) and looks at the differences in crime hotspot locations using two population-at-risk measures: the residential population (traditional) and the ‘ambient’ population (estimated using social media). The slides are available here and the […]

I recently presented some ongoing work on trying to identify anchor points (areas that are regularly visited by people such as workplace, home, the pub, etc.) at the IGU 2013 conference in Leeds. The most interesting part of the work, so far, is using a GIS algorithm […]
GISrUK Presentation: “Optimising an Agent-Based Model to Explore the Behaviour of Simulated Burglars”
I have recently presented some early work at the GISrUK conference on using a genetic algorithm (GA) to calibrate a complex agent-based burglary model. Slides are available here: GISrUK 2013 Presentation and the abstract is here: GISrUK 2013 Abstract. The aim of the work is to use a GA to calibrate the behaviour of virtual […]
I recently attended two excellent conferences: The European Conference on Complex Systems (ECCS) at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (3rd – 7th September). My talk was in the COSMIC satellite meeting which was full of interesting research (more info here). The 8th Conference of the European Social Simulation Association (ESSA) at the University of Salzburg, […]
I have recently attended the Association of American Geographers (AAG) annual meeting to present a paper entitled: Understanding Crime Context with Novel Geo-Spatial Data (available for download here). Abstract The work of crime analysts and modellers could benefit substantially from the use of new spatial data sets that are becoming more readily available. Examples include […]
